amendment right to due process, nor the u.s. law against killing americans abroad, nor the u.s. law banning assassinations, nor just the law against murder, nor the laws of war broadly legally constrain the president from ordering the type of assault that killed american citizen and prominent al qaeda figure on war al awlaki in yemen in 2011. al awlaki's son was also killed a couple of weeks after his father was killed. between those two killing, charlie savage at "the new york times" reported on the existence of a legal memo that the government was relying on to claim that the attack was legal. that memo is what is being disclosed to select members of congress tonight. it follows by two days the scoop by nbc news investigative correspondent michael isikoff, who this week on this show disclosed a white paper that was based on the reasoning of that secret memo. tonight's disclosure follows increasingly intense questioning of the administration on this matter by senate democrats, particularly by senator ron wyden of oregon, who today told reporters that while he understood that operations nee

those spending cuts from going into effect because gdp wouldn't take a hit. that means growth in the u.s. couldn't take a hit. as far as what else is propelling stocks higher, mergers and acquisitions going on, media, even in the office services area, office depot, office max, possibly talking about a tie-up themselves. that is certainly giving some momentum to stocks and giving investors a little bit of oo mph to buy into the stock. who knows if it will stick. >> alison, thank you. >> sure. >>> thank you for keeping me company here at cnn as i was in for brooke baldwin. i want to take you to "the situation room" with wolf blitzer because he starts right now. and let's take a look at the "closing bell." you heard alison kosik say we're not going to hit the 14,164 today but we there is a lot going on in washington with the sequester and we have to hope that we are going to be seeing these kinds of numbers, wolf. we certainly hope it for a long time. but depending on what -- depending on what washington does, we'll have to see if it sticks. wolf blitzer? >>> thanks very much. happening now
claiming his death proves they were absolutely justified in passing legislation banning u.s. nationals from adopting any more russian children. they did that at the end of last year. partly in response to u.s. legislation, targeting russian human rights abusers. but also because of concerns held for a long time here by russian officials who say they are worried about the way russian orphans are treated in the united states. supporters of the adoption ban claim since the 1990s 19 other russian children have died after being adopted by americans. the russian government says it is very concerned about the welfare of russian orphans and says 60,000 have are been adopted over the last 20 years. the adoption ban is one of the key reasons why relations between the united states and russia are the worst that they have been in a long time. a line of politicians here and officials have responded to the death of this 3-year-old boy by effectively saying, we told you so. phil black, cnn, russia. >>> european scandal over mislabeled meat keeps getting big der. details of the latest recall foods where tr

to the last caller whenever he was talking about the drone initiative. let me just say this. i'm a u.s. sailor, retired. disabled veteran. and it kills me that folks who have never been in the military want to talk about how we conduct business. >> stephanie: right. thomas i've gotten a lot of e-mails and calls with the same point basically that the military's going to use whatever tools they have at their disposal to save lives. most soldiers say it saves a lot of american soldiers' lives. >> caller: that's what it's supposed to do. >> stephanie: tom what i'm saying is i get the point as americans, we don't care about civilian casualties. we do. we always historically have. it is not wrong that it troubles people right? >> caller: right. it's not wrong but in the same sense, whenever you go to yemen and you teach people how to kill us you commit an act of treason. you get put on that list. and to make another point see it took our president two years to find osama bin laden. george bush and dick cheney and rumsfeld, we had him in afghanistan. then they called us off. but like the last caller
a class on u.s. defense budgeting. at georgetown, we do care about these issues and we share your concerns, as well. in the defense budget of 2013, i understand 19% of the budget is being represented for personnel. about 26% is for procurement. 40% is for operations. if you look at all the different accounts for which the budget is requested, and the sequestration cuts across the board will affect seriously to the manpower, the modernization, and the leadership of the military. i have reviewed a lot of documents of the defense budget for many years in the past. i do not see a way how we can cut the defense budget. i do not see a way how sequestration will occur and not affect these three crucial defense-related areas. now, knowing that only around 4% of the gdp is being constituted by the base defense budget, and a bulk of the gdp -- >> we agree on your fax. what is the question? [laughter] >> right. this is a puzzle to me. my question is, this is really a puzzle.

and the development of novel legal theories to justify the use of drones to assassinate u.s. citizens said to be enengaged in terrorism abroad all of which liberals find abhorrent. all of this sounds familiar even if the chorus is not as deafening as it was in the bush administration. they are expanding the powers, lethal water boarding and rendition and detention of combatants on the battlefield. >> when this president was when he was senator excoriated the president's interrogation program and presumption of imperial press den apresidential powers. he is very lucky he doesn't have a senator obama who is chastising him from the floor of the united states senate. >> reporter: added irony is many former bush administration officials are voicing strong support for president obama and the conducting of the war on terror. jenna: a bit of musical chairs. how is the administration responding to the criticism thus far. >> reporter: they're saying a lot of things we heard from the bush-cheney white house. we're told for example, this administration takes great care to limit the civilians of that m

with the increasingly violent content of popular media, and there is no standard or any system in the u.s. across varying media platforms. dr. bushman, who holds the margaret hall on robert randall chair at ohio state university is widely respected in his field offers a solution to this issue. there can be universal rating system on all media, but universal systems that are easy for parents to understand. the pan european game information system, for example, has five-age based ratings, three plus, seven plus, 12 plus, 16 plus, and 18 plus. six well recognizable symbols for potentially objectionable material. violence, sex, drugs, discrimination, fear, gambling. the current rating system is confusing to parents. for example, there is r for movies, tvma for tv, and fv, for fantasy violence in video games. another possible idea which is something i have long advocated for is to put warning labels on violent video games. the report also quotes, will i quote it, most research, more research is also needed on what types of individuals are more strongly affected by violent video games. many of the spre
, a standoff with the man believed to be christopher dorner. this is the ex-lapd officer, the former u.s. navy reservist who wrote that manifesto waging war on the lapd. this goes back to super bowl sunday. we had vikki vargas reporting from irvine on the murder of a young couple there, and from there it escalated throughout the week. this manhunt has gone all the way down to san diego and back. and now here we are at big bear again. >> and just yesterday we received video of a man purported to be christopher dorner at a short chalet in torrance buying scuba tanks. there had also been reports given his navy background that he was trying to steal a ship -- not a ship, a boat, and there was a hotel raided in mexico. but again, all along the search has never really left big bear, although it was scaled back just a bit on sunday and monday of this week. and here we find today that suspect matching christopher dorner has been in the mountains all along. kim baldinado has been covering this aspect of the story. we talk about the two deputies who were first responders. they were both taken to loma li

the u.s. troop presence there in half over the next year, and quote, by the end of next year, our war in afghanistan, he said, will be over. he talked briefly about the nuclear test in north korea and the race for a nuclear bomb in iran, but he spent more time, frankly, talking about the threat from cyber attacks, hackers threatening national security, our economy, and suggesting perhaps the issue of cyber terrorism is very real as we've been reporting here on fox news for some time. he spent the last part of the address, as you just heard, dealing with the gun issue, listing some of the victims of gun violence and their families in the audience saying each proposal deserves a vote. and then ended with the heroic stories from hurricane sandy and others. as he makes his way up the aisle here in the house chamber, giving some hugs to his cabinet members, let's bring back our panel. juan williams, of nina easton, charles krauthammer. charles, your thoughts on this state of the union address. >> i think it was a very effective address, he did what he had to do. it started with one sort of

by 22, 23 points? >> well, north dakotans are notorious ticket splitters. first time i won for the u.s. house of representatives was 1980. ronald reagan carried north dakota in a huge landslide. so people were on the republican side of the ticket voting for ronald reagan, came back over in large part, voted for me. i won with 57% that year. north dakotans are ticket splitters. they take a look at the candidate much more so than the party. although i must admit only two presidential candidates, two democratic presidential candidates in 100 years have gotten the votes of north dakota. they traditionally vote republican for president. but other than that, they're very choosy and they want someone they can trust someone they like and heidi heitkamp ran a great campaign. she will be a terrific senator. >> bill: you have been out of the senate now for two years. among other things, you're writing novels. and you have another one coming out. you've been working with a bipartisan policy center, particularly on the energy issue. and releasing your recommendations yesterday. to the congress and
